The Beauty of STEM is an award-winning curriulum that introduces girls to science through cosmetics. In this workshop, attendees will learn about best practices that The Beauty of STEM utilizes to employ community spaces and resources to support maker education. Participants will work in small groups to identify fashion and beauty resources available in their ecosystem, such as: makerspaces, brands, movements, product developers, etc.

We'll also share concrete examples of how The Beauty of STEM has worked to engage young girls in relevant STEM education. Through hands-on activities, participants will learn how to: integrate binary code into African-American girls' braid and bead designs, and design hair accessories using a smart cutting machine and connected online design platform. Attendees will have an opportunity to try the tools outlined in the activities and share their experiences with the group at large. To close the workshop, we'll engage in a question-and-answer session and open the floor for attendees to share additional resources or feedback.
